Join The Growing Windsurfing Community

Windsurfing is making a comeback, and for good reason. Great exercise and a lot of (fast) fun on the water. Manly Sailing now offers adults and teenagers level 1 and level 2 programs, private lessons as well as mixed watersports classes for teens.

Level 1

This is a mixed group class of kids 12+ years old and adults learn the basics of windsurfing. By the end you should be able to windsurf upwind and tack with confidence.

Level 2

Able to go upwind and control your board? Now you can get out on the water and learn to gybe as well.. maybe even learn to do water starts! This is a mixed group class of kids 12+ years old and adults who know the basics and want to keep improving on their technique.

Private Lessons

Can’t join our group classes or have some specific goals that you want to work on? We offer private 1-1, 2-1 or 3-1 lessons for you and your friends.
